These thoughts were received from one of the commandos who took part in the operation to stop the flotilla of boats from the FreeGaza movement. These are his thoughts.
Why on Earth we didn't demand an urgent meeting of the Security Council first I'll never know?
Turkey vowed that the shipments were inspected and pronounced safe. They vowed that there would only be Peace Activists on board the flotilla. So where did the 50 trained terrorists come from..?
Was it the Tooth Fairy who placed the crowbars, pick-axe handles, commando knives, flak jackets, gas masks, night vision goggles, catapults and axes aboard..?
Why did Israel bow to Turkish pressure and return ALL the dead bodies to Turkey, when it was clear they had in their hands three dead Al Qaidia members from Yemen and the rest were from other Arab countries.
We should have withdrawn OUR Ambassador, not wait until Turkey withdrew her's. Yet Turkey blandly announced yesterday, 'All Israel has to do is open up the Gaza Blockade and we promise a return to good relations again..!'
Yeah, Right..! Good relations..? (And pigs will fly)
The Turks have enjoyed over 600,000 Israelis holidaying in Turkey every year. Multiply six hundred thousand by, say $2,000 dollars per family unit and you'll understand why Turkey wants it's cake and eat it.
Sadly, they've recently elected a Fundamentalist Shariah Government and are edging into the Iran-al Quaida Camp and the Turkish army is getting very antsy about that.
Since Kamal Attaturk in the early 1900's, the Army has had a history of crushing Muslim Extremism in Turkey and the time is ripe for them to do that again, as the government well knows; and they too are really antsy about their health...and they get a reminder every single waking moment, cos they don't read Arab script in Turkey.
Attaturk made sure of that and converted Turkish into European script...... Anyway, from all of us in the IDF, thanks for your support. We need all the help we can get.
